CU Boulder Center for Inclusion and Social Change Scholarships
The Center for Inclusion and Social Change at the University of Colorado Boulder offers several annual scholarships for students in the LGBTQIA community. Please see the individual scholarship descriptions below and complete the supplemental questions to apply.
The LGBTQIA Scholarship is a $2,000 scholarship awarded to an undergraduate CU Boulder student. Students must be current undergraduates and have a record of service in making CU Boulder a more hospitable place for the LGBTQIA community. Preference is given to first-year students who have demonstrated satisfactory academic progress. Students do not have to demonstrate financial need to apply.
Joel Roger Wayne Scholarship
The Joel Roger Wayne Scholarship is a $1,000 award for CU Boulder undergraduate students that was established in 1996 to ensure that talented LGBTQ students could complete their college degrees, even if their families cut them off financially. Joel was a firm believer that if he could even help one young LGBTQ student get through college, he would have accomplished something meaningful in this world. While this scholarship is based on financial need, students do not need to have been financially cut off from their families to receive it.
Positive Futures Scholarship
The Positive Futures Scholarship is a $1,500 academic year scholarship for undergraduate or graduate students whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS or who are involved in public health advocacy. Additionally, students must be enrolled full-time, must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. To protect the privacy of scholarship winners, this is an award that can be given anonymously.
